A week

I was going to pass this week by, since I don't have any finishes, but I've done a lot of stuff, and I may as well share, though most of this you've seen if you follow me on Instagram.

I got buttons for the QuiltCon button exchange (yes! I'm also going to QuiltCon!):

Hayley of Hayley Sews did mine, and I recommend her highly. My husband pointed out that I'm not super associated with this bird, except maybe in my head? It's on my quilt labels. And also, huh, well, I thought it was on my Etsy header, but it's not. Uh. Well, it's my bird, anyway, even if I'm not getting it out there. Oh, here, it's my Spoonflower logo.

I made this collage from magazine pages. I'd like to use it as a color scheme for something... no idea what yet.

I made a lot of progress on this English paper pieced pincushion:

I think it's funny that the collage and the pincushion share several colors. Also, if you want to make one and can't get her templates to download I have a pdf I can send you - blotchandthrum (at) gmail (dot) com.

I made a grayscale mini quilt for my color theory class, using white, grey, and black fabrics I had on hand:

And then I had to stop quilting it cause I broke my sewing machine! (cries) I think I chipped the bobbin case. It may be the shop for like two weeks, because if that's the case, they have to order the piece. I still have my straight line quilter, so I may still finish this. Currently, the plan is to take it in as is for a critique tomorrow.

And I worked on another assignment about value for color theory involving dye:

This was last night.

And here it is today, glued on paper. I would sure prefer to quilt it, but it takes too much time, and also, did I mention my sewing machine is in the shop?

So, that was a pretty exciting week after all!
